Monaco prospect Aurelien Tchouameni remained non-committal over his future amid growing speculation of interest from Real Madrid, Manchester United and Liverpool.
Tchouameni came through the Bordeaux academy before joining Monaco in 2020 on a four-and-a-half-year deal.
The midfielder has appeared 34 times in Ligue 1 this campaign, with only Wissam Ben Yedder (36) and goalkeeper Alexander Nubel (37) featuring more for Philippe Clement’s side.
The 22-year-old Tchouameni represents a threat at both ends of the pitch, leading Monaco’s charts for successful opposition-half passes (912), while making the most tackles (84) and winning the most duels (258).
That presence has led to interest from the likes of Madrid, where fellow France youngster Eduardo Camavinga joined last season, Liverpool and United, who are reportedly also interested in Declan Rice.
Tchouameni, speaking at the annual Union Nationale des Footballeurs Professionels (UNFP) award ceremony in Paris, where he was named in Ligue 1’s Team of the Year, played his cards close to his chest on his future.
“Good question. I have a contract with Monaco,” he said when asked about the transfer speculation.
“I’m very good there. The most important thing is to finish the season well. We’ll do the accounts at the end and we’ll see what the future holds for me.”
Tchouameni and Monaco conclude their French top-flight season with a trip to Lens on Saturday, with Clement’s side second in the table, ahead of Marseille on a goal difference.
